BALTIMORE — The funeral for slain Baltimore homicide Detective Sean Suiter will be held at 11 a.m. on Nov. 29 at Mt. Pleasant Church, according to a police department death notice.
Suiter died Thursday after he was shot in the head while investigating a homicide in the notoriously violent Harlem Park neighborhood in West Baltimore. The 18-year department veteran was 43 years old, and leaves behind a wife and five children.
After nearly a week, police have not provided a detailed suspect description. Since at least the 1960s, the city has never gone this long without identifying a suspect in the killing of a police officer.
City and state authorities are offering a $215,000 reward for information.
A GoFundMe page set up to support the family has raised more than $41,000.
There will also be a viewing for Suiter held on Nov. 27 and Nov. 28 at Vaughn Greene Funeral Home in Randallstown. The viewing will run from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on both days.
